issues, force realignment issue and nuclear transparency. the new government wants to look at the secret nuclear agreements that in the past the u.s. with nuclear weapons on board ships in port , the status of forces agreement, you know, some other, you know, other legal issues that will be in the near-term. also japanese support to afghanistan. will they just write another check as they pledged $5 billion, which is very welcome, but there is even questions whether they want to put sneakers on the ground let alone boots on the ground. i think over time we have a new government with a very different strategic vision from the united states. so i think a differing priorities, a different vision, a different way of looking at future security issues that we can't right now predict. i think we have a greater potential for strain. >> bruce, thanks very much for joining us, bruce clinger from the heritage foundation. coming up, my notebook. my sunglasses.
